“Even in the rain they are fantastic”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

It hardly ever rains here, but it certainly did today. This did not dampen the view of the fishtraps from the river levee, or the conversation about the ingenuity of the Aboriginal fishing techniques. And the photos, both still and video, were beautiful. Take a walk in the dry, or a car in the rain.

“Historically facinating”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

The fish traps are facinating from a historical perspective and well worth a vist if you are in the area. Check the tours times as early as you can as they had changed the time and not bothered yet to update the brouchures when I visited.

“One of the oldest man made structures on earth”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

The brewarrina fish traps on the Barwon river which is a tributary of the Darling river is a must see. It is estimated the structure is 40,000 yrs old. The traps are a collection of stones and boulders strategically placed in the river to trap fish when the river level drops after an increase in flow. It has National Heritage listing

“Brewarrina Indigineous Fish Traps”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

A wonderful piece of ancient technology that has survived for thousands of years. We were lucky enough to be there when the Darling was not in drought and see many local birds using the traps to catch their meals. Interestingly when we were there some local school children were visiting the traps as part of their learning. As we walked along the wall the children were able to tell us about story of the traps. A very interesting place to visit if you are in the area.
